Wow...switch drs immediately...at four weeks your baby is still implanting and if you ovulated late...your numbers are higher than mine were at my first appt and i was 4w2d...i went for sono at 6w...no heartbeat...went back a week later...and everything was fine. Now i'm 17w3d...but there really is no reason to get sooooo stressed out...its bad for you and the baby. They cant really do much in the first trimester to prevent miscarriage anyway so best to try and relax...minimize your stress.

The fact that they hardly rose in 7 days is pretty concerning. I'd ask for a repeat in 48 hours of your blood work and an ultrasound to see if anything changed. When was your last period?

It's too early to see anything even in the tubes. So they can't outrule ectopic. My dr told me if the levels get over 10 thousand than its not ectopic. I would wait another week because at four weeks my hcg levels were the same and all they seen was a sac. The us tech told me she thought I was having a blighted ovum. Went to my appointment a few days ago and everything was fine and I could see my little baby moving.

I would ask for a repeat blood count and then another ultrasound in 2 weeks at 6 weeks pregnant. You will see a heart beat if it's going to be a viable pregnancy at that time.

If its not an ectopic the most it could be was a blighted ovum and that will not hurt your body at all to wait it through. That is weird that the numbers didn't double but I wouldn't give up hope. You should go to the misdiagnosed miscarriages.
